(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- Terry Fator brings his hilarious cast of character to the MPAC stage on Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 8:00pm. Tickets range from $69-$99.
It's a long journey from the small town of Corsicana, Texas to the Las Vegas stage.with a lot of detours on the way to becoming a superstar. but with the combination of his one in a million talent and the help of the millions of fans who chose him as the winner of America's Got Talent, Terry Fator made it to the top.
But America's Got Talent almost didn't happen for Terry. After two decades on the road performing at county fairs, kids' birthday parties and oddball venues, he truly thought his lifelong dream of being on the Vegas stage might never come true. But in 2007 he finally got the chance to audition for America's Got Talent and became the Season 2 champ, taking home the $1 million prize and title of "Best New Act in America."
"It was the big break I had worked for my entire life," Terry says. Soon he began performing to sellout crowds at the Las Vegas Hilton and by the following year he signed what has been described as "one of the largest entertainment deals in Las Vegas history" to headline his own show, "Terry Fator: The VOICE of Entertainment," at The Mirage Hotel & Casino.
During the 10 years he has been the headliner at the Mirage Hotel Terry has won the coveted awards of Las Vegas's best show, best impressionist, best all-around performer, best family show and best overall show; and year after year he has been ranked in the top 3 on Forbes' list of the top-earning comics just behind comic legend Jerry Seinfeld.
Terry can impersonate over 100 voices with favorites being Karen Carpenter, Elton John, Garth Brooks, Justin Timberlake, Elvis, Meghan Trainor and Bruno Mars. His cast of characters includes: Winston the Impersonating Turtle; the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Elton John; Vicki the Cougar; President Donald Trump and annoying neighbor Duggie.
But even with all his time performing, he always finds time to enjoy life with his beautiful wife Angie and to give of his time to the cause he passionately believes in, helping America's veterans.
